USS BAINBRIDGE DLGN 25 APPEARS ON NCIS…

March 5th, 2014


As Gibbs and Bishop make a left turn down the corridor towards the conference room at timemark 18:58 in Dressed To Kill (episode 16, season 11, aired last evening, 4 March 2014) a painting of my old ship–albeit in her earlier incarnation as DLGN 25–appears on the wall behind them. If you mouse over the photo above you can see my own print of that painting as it hangs to the left of my writing desk.

I wonder if the painting is random or if someone on the show has a connection to the Gray Ghost of the Pacific.

      Thank you.

      I’ve often wondered why no one ever writes about the news crawler to the left of the elevator in the NCIS offices.

      Good morning Chris,

      I only got sea sick once on the Bainbridge and the seas were so rough the Captain was eating saltines on the bridge. I did know a sailor who suffered from chronic sea sickness and the Navy actually offered him shore duty, but he turned it down. The sea sickness was a small price to pay in his mind for the fun of visiting foreign ports.

      Love,

      Jeff
